FLASHBACK: How Not To Be A Dick To Your Black Friend

on Thursday, Jan. 2nd

With the TurnStyle staff on holiday break, we polled our newsroom about some of their favorite pieces of the last year.

 Lissa Soep picked “How Not To Be A Dick To Your Black Friend” by  at XO Jane:

[Some] of you just have lived in the very white world of our racists forefathers’ design and just don’t have a clue. You genuinely love your friends of color and you value them on a human level and would never want to hurt them. Come closer, love. You’re the one I’m looking for.

So grab a pen and take notes.

There’s quite a bit of NSFW language in the piece, but hey, you’re not at work today! Oh, you are? Sorry.
